Since signing to TDE, we’ve seen a lot more of Chattanooga, Tenn.’s Isaiah Rashad. And that doesn’t look like it’ll change any time soon, as the young MC was the latest artist to be featured on Myspace‘s ONETWOWATCH series.

The social media platform traveled to the 21-year-old’s hometown to get a firsthand account of his upbringing. This included speaking with his parents.

“His punishment was writing — writing the dictionary pages,” Rashad’s mother explained. Her son clearly benefited from doing this. But the anecdotes and wisdom didn’t stop here. The southern rhymeslinger’s father later spoke on how he told his son to approach his craft.

“I always wanted him to keep it real and stay positive, and make sure that when you spit, you saying something that’s gonna change somebody’s whole intellect about music,” he said.

If anything, the mini-movie adds a bit of humanity to the newcomer’s story. Get familiar with Isaiah Rashad below.
